Speaking on this occasion, Dinesh Agarwal, CEO and Founder, IndiaMART said, “India has witnessed tremendous evolution in its economy because of the hard work and toil of our SMEs. Unfortunately, their efforts often go unnoticed. For instance, we have been applauding the bigger brands of a particular sector which are the fronts face towards revolutionising the industry. We however, do not pay heed to the other players in the ecosystem which comprises the equipment manufacturers, the technicians, the suppliers among others. Our initiative will be an effort to recognize, nurture and support the developing businesses to drive India’s growth further.”
